'Folly Fun at the SunLove Beach Cottage'!

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bed, 2 bath cottage. Walk everywhere!!!!

Enjoy a simple, but comfortable, vintage Folly cottage. This original cottage, built in 1945, is one of the few left on Folly Beach. Back in the day locals would hand build their family camp on Folly Beach and enjoy the beauty of this barrier island - the beach, birds and breezes. Fishing, crabbing, shrimping and oystering were a way of life....... and still is. This wonderful low country life style is depicted in the art in the cottage.

Park your car and break out the flip-flops!! SunLove is a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to Center Street, which is packed with great restaurants, bars, and shopping. All things fun - the River Park, fishing pier, Bert's grocery, coffee shop and brewery are a short walk away. Yet, SunLove is far enough from the crowd to enjoy some down time. Grab a book and a beverage and enjoy one of the porches or the back patio. When you get your energy back up you can grill that fish you caught or cook up a mess of Frogmore Stew. No, no frogs are involved, mostly shrimp..I'll leave the recipe for you!

The house is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath with the bedrooms upstairs.

**Please note - the stairs are steep and narrow and may not be applicable for small children, better for older children age 6 and above based on parents discretion**

There is an adjacent Studio to the Cottage that is reserved for the owner including 2 parking spaces to the far left of the Cottage. Our renters privacy is assured.

Bring your boat, your dog and your flip flops. Come enjoy a wonderful vacation in this vintage cottage which represents the joy, beauty and bounty of the low country.

Keywords: Original Vintage Folly Beach Cottage. Fenced yard for dog. Parking for boat. 5 minute walk to beach, shopping, restaurants.

About Jackie Flynt, owner

I Love the mysterious beauty and charm of the Charleston area. The moss laden oaks;

egrets and herons fishing when the tide is out; dolphins jumping in the sparkling water; pelicans and gulls flying overhead; the dynamic tidal ebb and flow of the creeks and rivers.

The people here are kind and humble; courteous and respectful. We want you to go first. We have soul and soul food! From red rice to local farm fresh veggies and to the best seafood, ever! You won't leave here hungry, that's for sure.

Why Jackie Flynt, owner chose Charleston Area

Want to park your car and walk everywhere? This is it. Want to vacation with your beloved pet and know they have a shady, fenced yard to play in? This is it. This older home is grandfathered and does not have to meet FEMA elevation levels. Because the back porch and deck are ground level, you can grill or read while your pet is safely fenced next to you.

What makes this house unique

Walk everywhere! Bring your dog! Bring your boat! Original vintage Folly island cottage. Fenced shady yard for pets.

Great spot for a classic Folly Beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) plus our 2 dogs had a wonderful time staying at Sun Love this past week. Jackie and Donna were great to work with throughout the booking process and kindly checked on us during the rental to be sure we had all we needed. The house is nicer and more spacious than the photos suggest, and it's new exterior paint looks great. The fenced-in yard suited our dogs very well. We loved how many beach supplies were available, including a cart to haul stuff to the beach. The screened porch out front was great for storing beach gear, and we enjoyed evenings on the back screened porch. I love to cook and was so happy to find a well-equipped kitchen with excellent cookware and supplies, including a few spices, salt and pepper, sugar, and oil. The gas stove is very new and immaculately clean, the dishes and glassware are very nice, and the cookware is in great shape. The kitchen was just a bit dark in terms of lighting, but I've stayed in many rentals and overall this was one of the nicest kitchens I've ever enjoyed. The bedrooms are spacious and work great for a family. There is a fine collection of books and movies, and my husband enjoyed teaching the kids to play chess. We would've enjoyed a few more board games, but ended up visiting the James Island Goodwill and scoring some games to keep us busy. We recommend Crosby's for fresh seafood and the Black Magic Cafe for breakfast. James Island County Park is worth a visit, too. Many thanks to Jackie and Donna for a lovely stay! We can't wait to return to SunLove Beach Cottage again!

It was great experience

  • 5 of 5

The rental aspect was simple thanks to Donna contacting me when things needed to be done on my end, (I'm forgetful) but she always reminded me. The owner contacted me the night of our arrival to welcome us to let us know the light was on and the house was ready, which was really nice since we hit every traffic jam known to mankind. The house was perfect for me and my family, simple walks to shops, food, and the beach. Short drive into Charleston for sight seeing. Great value as well check it out

Cozy for people & pets!

  • 5 of 5

SunLove is a terrific place to relax. The location is superb, walking distance to the beach, with a stop at "Bert's" along the way. This was our dog Buddy's first trip, and he enjoyed the fenced in backyard with squirrels to chase. (He never catches them). There are plenty of beach chairs available as well as books if heaven forbid, it should rain one day. We will definitely return.

Not really impressed

  • 1 of 5

We were somewhat saddened to relocate to this rental from a previous awesome rentalbdue to circumstances beyond anyone's control. We came in with no preconceived notion of the place, but when you wake in the morning with bug bites on you and cockroach carcasses in the kitchen you get really disappointed. Can't recommend this to anyone.

Wolcott,CT. usa

its got the Folly vibe ,its a real comfortable beach cottage in a perfect location! Dog fenced yard

  • 5 of 5

First its so much better than the pictures online! lay out very comfortable with everything you need and i mean everything. Donna and Jackie two nice people to rent from because the communication is easy and friendly down to earth nice ladies.They get back to you and answer any questions you may have. We got to meet Jackie the owner who is very sweet and when she is at the unit next door, you dont even hear her its still very private no worries. I highly reccommend renting this the whole experience reservation down to departure was easy. But if you dont like going up stairs for bedrooms it may not be for you all the bedrooms are upstairs.The bedrooms upstairs have two rooms with queen beds ,bedrooms are roomy beds are comfortable, The twin bedroom nice for children or teeenagers adults too but my tall son said the twins were on the shortside for him but hes 6 ft tall. Let me add the bathrooms are pretty good size , nice washer and dryer,dishwasher too.Most importantly we found it to be very clean and well stocked .the screened in porch is great to have and fenced in yard made our lab Jasper very happy! best part walk to town easy and walk to beach easy since parking is very hard on weekends. Thankyou so much Jackie and Donna

Located between the river and the beach. 5 minute walk to both. 5 minute walk to Center street, which is packed with restaurants, bars and shopping. The public boat ramp and fishing pier are a few short blocks away. Walking distance to several Folly parks including the River Park, Pirate park, and Bark Park for dogs. Short drive to beautiful James Island county park.
